This is Mary's second motorcycle.  I was away on business when she excitedly called me to tell me that she saw a motorcycle she loved and wanted to buy it.  It was a 250 cc Suzuki GZ250X, a little cruiser-style one-lunger.  It was low to the ground and she could flat-foot it (very important to a new rider).  It could happily cruise around 65 miles an hour but without a windshield it was difficult to hang on the handlebars.  Of course this was only a problem to me because her speeds hovered around 50 on a staightaway and below the recommended speeds for a curve.  We both enjoyed this bike for a few months despite the very uncomfortable seat. 

Then one day she wanted to trade it in for something bigger, a Kawasaki Vulcan 500, also a cuiser-style bike.  It is a water-cooled twin engined bike, quite a bit heavier than her first.  We went on several rides in the beginning.  Even son-in-law accompanied us at first, ver patiently riding shortgun, with Mary between us.  Eventually the rides became sparses and she kept declining my offers for a ride and she hasn't been on it for two years now. Too bad she lost her enthusiasm she had at the beginning but I fully understand it.
